Sunshine Plaza expansion
It was terrific to hear the announcement by Lend Lease last month about the major extension to Sunshine Plaza. It's great timing, with the Evans Street upgrade being close to completion and the civil works for Maroochydore CBD underway, and it’s clear that a new future is being chartered for Maroochydore. After seeing plans for the extension and its outlook onto Cornmeal Creek, I'm sure this project will be an outstanding addition to the retail offering for Sunshine Coast residents.
Celebrating a small business
It was a privilege to represent the Mayor at the relaunch of a small business called King I.T. at Sunshine Plaza. This successful small business is an outstanding example of a young 28 year old entrepreneur, ably backed by a young team of IT experts making their mark in the business world. Congratulations to Patrick and the team - I wish you all the best for the future.
Nominate for Australia Day Awards
I recently attended the launch of the 2017 Australia Day Awards. I would encourage everyone to think about nominating their local heroes – these awards are all about recognising hard working members of our community and in speaking with last year's winners, I know they have found the whole experience to be incredibly humbling but rewarding.

Meet and greet
I’ll be outside the Bli Bli IGA on October 11 at 9-11am. Please drop by if you would like to have a chat about council projects or local issues.
